A Fun Class

March 9th, 2015

This past Saturday a few friends and I went to a local glass studio (David Jacobson Glass) to take a glassblowing class. It was a blast! David told us that the hardest part would be picking out our colors, it truly was. I was amazed at how fast the entire process went, it was really only around 2 minutes from start to finish for each ornament.

Above are the three ornaments that I made, which I absolutely LOVE. I’m thinking I might go back to make more ornaments, they would make fabulous handmade Christmas gifts for family and friends. I’ll also keep this in the back of my mind for when we have friends from out of town visiting. It was a fun way to spend an afternoon and it’s nice to have something to display when you’re finished.

Have you done anything new and fun recently?
